Category Title Date Time
Film "Samsara" 2012-12-09 19:00:00


Director: Ron Fricke   USA, 2011, 103 minutes; rated G

Samsara is a film composed of powerful images, most magnificent, some shocking, all photographed with great care in the highest possible HD resolution. Filmed over five years, in locations in 25 countries, it is the kind of experience you simply sink into.

For Ron Fricke and his collaborator Mark Magidson, it is a continuation of the meditative imagery they used in Baraka (1992), which intensely regarded the strangeness and wonder of our planet. I learn from Wikipedia that "samsara," literally meaning "continuous flow," is "the repeating cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth" within such Indian religions as Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism. 
--Roger Ebert

It presents a visual argument for slow looking, for careful, meditative attention to what is seen. Without narration or dialogue, Samsara is an invitation to watch closely and to suspend interpretation. –The New York Times
